Dane Cook launches new iPhone/iTouch comedy app

I zinged Dane Cook recently for being late to the Twitter game, but now that he's put his focus squarely back on his stand-up comedy, he's quickly caught up to the game and one-upped it with the launch of what appears to be the first comprehensive iPhone/iTouch app specifically designed to interact with an individual stand-up comedian. Here is Dane Cook with his tech friend to explain it:

The details for his app, selling for $2.99 on iTunes, include backstage videos, photos and texts from Cook, along with ticket sales — while he's on tour, at least — as well as the ability to directly access and buy his tracks and albums.

Related: Though seemingly hundreds of new apps are popping up for free or for sale on iTunes every week, there still aren't that many for comedy (unless you count fart noises, so OK, maybe; and also some generic joke ideas to share). 60Frames is one of the few, offering its "Best of Comedy" video app for $2.99 (their best known partnership from 2008 may have been with Kids In The Hall).
